Well, the day has come for me to go and check out toddler beds for our little boys. The triplets have graduated from their cribs, and they will be sleeping in beds starting tonight. When we go and look at the beds, the triplets will be going with us. This is so they can pick out the beds that they want.
Some of my friends just told me to get each of them a matching toddler bed and be done with it. Their reasoning was that I would not have to have the hassle of dragging them along and spending a long time waiting for them to make their choices. But, I’m not going to do things that way. I value my children’s opinions, and I feel like it is important for them to choose things on their own whenever they can. It helps them to develop a sense of identity and feel confident in themselves. And that is my goal to raise self-reliant and confident children. Letting them make their own choices is a good start.
I went to the antique store with my best friend Mary. Mary and I are into collecting antiques of all kinds, and going to the antique store together was a regular thing that we did.
Our antique collections were interesting to say the very least. We collected tin toys from the forties and fifties, and we also had a number of antique baby dolls. We had antique dishes, cooking wares, and furniture. We also have tons of old books from the 1800′s. Today, we were going to add more things to our collections.
The both of us browsed the store for a while to see what interesting things we could find. I found me some antique chess sets that contained some wooden chess pieces. Mary got herself some more old books. We paid for our items, and then we left the store for lunch. Mary and I were certainly happy with our purchases. Additionally, we were happy to grow our collections.
